One of my favorite things about the day after Thanksgiving is sitting down to build our new Christmas Lego set. This year, Lego re-released a set we had previously missed out on…the toy shop. I was very glad to have a second chance to add this to our village!
Each member of the family had a job to do, although Chickadee’s was largely supervisory:
In addition to the shop itself (which has some great details, including a highly prized light brick), the set came with a village Christmas tree, another bench, and some fun minifigs (including a pair of carolers). We also got to build the two free-with-purchase sets from this year…a Christmas train and a gingerbread house:
Next year, we’ll have to relocate our village…there is officially no more room on this shelf!
This tradition is a fun way to kick off our family’s Christmas celebrations every year!
